What are your general comments?

"It started very early in the morning. We had a continental breakfast. Then a speech by someone from the admissions office, then we split up into several groups. Half the people went to interviews. The other half went to a computer presentation and a financial aid session. Then we switched. The 3 interviews in a row was kinda tough. My first two were very conversational and friendly. My last one had a lot of tough ethics and diversity questions. Many people had at least one student interviewer, but I didn't. The computer presentation was okay. Kinda boring, but neat to see how well they use technology. The financial aid session was depressing as usual. Lunch was catered and attracted a horde of poor, hungry med students who were glad to answer our questions. They all were very friendly and seemed very happy there. Then we went on a tour. They have top notch facilities. I loved the student lounge, although the big screen TV and foosball table might not be conducive to studying. And that was it. Right now this is my No. 1 choice (of the 3 schools I've interviewed at)." Report Response
